Defenders maintain readiness with new M18 pistol
Airmen from the 423rd Security Forces Squadron fire the M18 Sig Sauer handgun during a qualification course at RAF Molesworth, United Kingdom, July 28, 2020. During the course, Airmen from the 423rd SFS familiarized themselves with the M18 and learned about its various functions including ergonomics, target acquisition, reliability and durability to increase shooter lethality. The M18 will replace the M9 Beretta which has been in use for more than 30 years. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Eugene Oliver)
